Last week in our latest alt-pop dispatch, we featured mysterious Danish artist Baby Blood and her bewitching song “White Lotus,” and now we have the pleasure of premiering the accompanying music video.

The track lands right in that Scandinavian sweet spot between synth-pop and voidwave, and the DIY visual brings the song’s creepier aspects into relief.

“I made the video in my living room. I built a puppet from bits of scrap I had laying around and made miniature scenographies,” Baby Blood says. “My inspiration for the video came from the work of Tim Burton and Asian shadow puppets. I wanted to create a mythical animated world seen through a filtered lens.”

The result feels kinda like a kids’ show as interpreted by Tool. Check it out below.
